Days of Being: August 14

After a horrible morning of fussiness and fighting, I turned off the radio and prayed for my children during our drive to school. I asked God to show them mercy. I prayed for beauty to emerge from the tangled wreckage of hurt feelings and harsh words. I asked God to redeem their day.

Days of Being is a micro-memoir project exploring memories and moments from every day of the year. Multiple years from my life are represented within the project celebrating what Madeleine L’Engle once said: “I am still every age that I have been.” Today’s micro-memoir is from one of my August 14s.
